Headend facilities and hub sites are cornerstones of the broadband network. Because they are so vital to our communications needs, these facilities are designed to never fail. The foundation of that reliability are the power and energy conversion and storage systems.
Headend and hub locations must operate 24/7 even when the electrical utility grid is down. Without them, broadband networks go dark and tens of thousands of customers lose communications. These locations house a variety of communications and computing equipment of varying ages making powering requirements diverse. Power systems must support equipment requirements for AC and DC loads. Engineering the correct energy solution for each facility ensures reliable and redundant power all the time, every time.
EnerSys® provides the complete power ecosystem—high efficiency rectifiers convert utility electricity into DC for energizing network communications equipment, intelligent distribution systems route the power to the right equipment and batteries provide the reserve time to keep the facility running during utility power outages. Reliability, TCO and intelligent control is the EnerSys standard. Our product solutions are complemented by a team of service professionals that engineer, furnish, install (EF&I) and maintain equipment to customer standards.
